RV cutting out problem, Gulf Stream Sun Voyager.
Hi all you RV'ers,
I'm hoping you can help out with a problem a friend has with his 1995 Gulf Stream Sun Voyager, 6.5 Chevrolet TD with Stanadyne electronic injection.
When driving the engine momentarily cuts out, he has learnt to 'blip' the accelerator pedal, and the engine fires up again !, if the accelerator is not 'blipped' then the engine dies completely, this happens completely randomly, and does not make any difference if the engine is hot or cold, going up or down hill or on the level. The 'Service Throttle Soon' light on the dash, lights up every time.
He has had, to date, 7 (yes SEVEN !) pumps fitted on advice from a so called, specialist diagnostic company, who so far have charged him £2000 !! Which he is obviously trying to get back from them, seeing as they have failed dramatically to solve the problem.
I have virtually no mechanical knowledge myself, but my friend is fairly familiar with all the oily bits under the bonnet, but he is at his wits end...any input from all our experts out there will be gratefully received.
Many thanks in anticipation.
Vinny...ps. Sorry it's a bit of a ramble !
